So if you're anything like me, you GOTTA have your sweet things too ! I find with any type of lifestyle , balance is the key. But we hear this BALANCE word all the time-and this is different and can show up differently for everyone. Balance for me is not 100 % restricting the pleasures in food, but finding a more creative and healthier way to enjoy.
I always have these tasty sweet " treats" to satisfy cravings when they arise ( frequent ) . The best part about them is they are diabetic friendly, high high high in fibre and good fats. Truly guilt free- Free of gluten and refined sugars. Posted below are the ingredients, so YOU TOO can have these little gems in your back pocket for your never going away sweet craving :) Oh and because they are high in fibre- you really only need one or two , and you'll feel extremely satisfied.
Enjoy your food- recreate your relationship with how you see SWEET. it doesnt have to be a bomb to your system , caloric overload and ruin all the work progress you've made on this lifestyle change.
